‘Fraudulent’ digital billboards: Why are people buying these fake billboards?
- by admin
Digital billboard ads are a relatively new business model that’s popping up all over the country.
They’re typically created to help people get out the vote, promote political causes, or sell things online.
But some advertisers are turning fake billboards into marketing campaigns, claiming they’re being duped by ad buyers looking to make money off of their campaign.
They even advertise on the same websites that the ads are being run on, according to the Daily Dot.
And some of the ads, which have since been taken down, are downright dangerous, like this one for an election-related site that says “Vote” and “Vote for Trump.”
There’s no proof that these ads are legit, but they do appear to be a bit of a scam.
One ad for a campaign called “Stop The War,” which is selling a bumper sticker, says: “Stop the war!
Vote for Trump” on it.
The bumper sticker is also posted in a picture with a picture of a Trump sign with the caption “Trump, you are the only candidate who will stop the war.”
The campaign says it’s advertising on a site called VoteTrump.com.
The campaign also posted the same billboard on Facebook and Instagram.
But on those sites, the posts were deleted and the posters were blocked from seeing them.
We’re trying to get the campaign to take it down and to get a full refund.
And we’re trying our best to make sure that all these people are aware of that, and that they know how to take them down.
And in the meantime, some people are buying these ads, and taking them down because they think they’re legit.
“I’m going to go buy one right now,” one person told the Daily Beast.
Another person said she had paid $50 to $60 for a sticker, but decided not to because she’s worried that the fake ads could hurt her feelings.
“There’s a lot of things I’ve read about fake ads, I haven’t seen one that says this one, but I can’t imagine not buying one,” she said.
“People have to do what’s best for them, and I just don’t think it’s right.”
The Daily Dot has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.
